The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Department of
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences currently has three training programs:
Pre-doctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology, Postdoctoral Residency in
Clinical Psychology and a Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical
Neuropsychology. The Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology and
Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Neuropsychology should have full
accreditation status reinstated after the APA Site Visit that should be
conducted by the Fall of 2023. The Postdoctoral Residencies (Clinical and
Clinical Neuropsychology) have been accredited since 2002 and would have
maintained APA-Accreditation had there not been a delay in Site Visits due
to Covid-19. The programs are awaiting notification of when the programs can
schedule a Site Visit to re-establish accreditation.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are critical to the healthcare systems and training programs at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) Therefore, we strive to create a learning community where residents and faculty of all backgrounds feel welcome and supported.
Residents are provided with exposure to training opportunities within a diverse patient population and settings. The residency emphasizes cultural diversity in all aspects of the training program. In addition to the focus on diversity within clinical, research, didactic, and supervisory experiences within the residency, a Cultural Diversity Committee offers additional input into this crucial area of training. Opportunities exist for trainees to participate on this committee with faculty, which allows for direct input on the goals of diversity-informed programming, didactics and other training experiences that may be offered during the year.
